Andy Goldsworthy in Forest School - October 2019
KS1 created Andy Goldsworthy inspired art out of natural materials during Forest School. Year 2
developed their ideas further by adding contrasting colours and swirls similar to Andy Goldsworthy.
Arts Morning - October 2019
For arts morning we started by hearing the wonderful story of Creation from the bible. From this we
were split into mixed groups and learnt four new skills to represent each day that God created. For the
sea and sky we learnt how to paint and create our tints and tones of blue. For the land and earth, we used
different materials to collage trees and plants. We showed Day and Night by creating the sun and moon by
blending with chalk and pastels. Then we learnt how to draw sea and sky creatures using oil pastels.
Meet our choir
We have chosen to do choir so that we can learn
new songs and teach our friends. The first few
weeks we were practising harvest songs and we
have now been learning Mercy by Duffy.
We went to see Joseph and the Amazing
Technicolour Dreamcoat at the Hippodrome
Theatre in Birmingham.
Anna in Year 3 said "I thought the songs were fun
and I can't wait to sing them in choir."
Martha in Reception said "It was my first time at
a theatre and I loved it so much."
